Overland Park, KS — Induction Dynamics and S3i Sound announced its agreement to jointly market SolidDrive technology developed by S3i Sound. SolidDrive technology turns semi-rigid and rigid surfaces such as walls, ceilings, glass and floors into speakers. The technology was honored at this year’s CES (Consumer Electronics Show) with an Innovations 2004 Design and Engineering Award in the audio category. The SolidDrive technology will be marketed as the Induction Dynamics SolidDrive and is now available.
“We are ecstatic to enter into this relationship with S3i Sound,” says Chris Combest, CEO & President of Induction Dynamics. “The Induction Dynamics SolidDrive provides dealers and installers a completely new and different way of delivering installed audio that compliments our existing product portfolio and, more importantly, our philosophy in offering unique, patented and proven technologies to the audio marketplace.”
The Induction Dynamics SolidDrive produces sound from solid surfaces through a patented rare-earth alloy utilized by the U.S. military for use in sonar applications. This alloy exhibits certain predictable and repeatable properties within a magnetic field allowing it to convert an audio signal into a powerful vibration that can be transferred into a rigid or semi-rigid surface, evenly delivering sound from the entire surface.
“S3i Sound is excited about this strategic partnership,” says Hal Fallert, CEO & President of S3i Sound. “Induction Dynamics is known for its high-end, superb quality products and its unbelievable dealer network. These dealers will be able to offer their customers a completely unique technology that no one else in the industry has.”
The Induction Dynamics SolidDrive is available through an extensive network of Induction Dynamics dealers throughout the United States. To find out more information, call Induction Dynamics toll-free at 866-663-9770.
